Outriggers at Dawn

Taken on the 1st day of the challenge, and tried many different ways to bring out the effect in Duotone, but was not really pleased with any of them, so on the last day at 10am set about to create a duo tone just using 2 color Tones in the original.

Very bold duotone! Beyond what most probably see as a "duotone" but completely within the guidelines in my book. I quite love how the texture in the water is echoed in the sky, only in a different color. Very impressive shot and processing.

Wow, Brian, I LOVE this image. The colors are gorgeous, and so very different than the traditional duotone combinations. The composition is lovely too. Excellent!

There's somethhing wrong with this photo. The sky is great, but the water looks to artistic.

since this is in color I am going to go out on a limb (now please don't cut it out from under me) but I'm not sure what is duotone in this shot...if this were any other challenge this would be fine but I think this is DNMC
